We went there with our 3 years old in an afternoon. There are many animals but the spaces for them are too small. Still we can show and tell our child stories about different animals. Children can also feed the elephant. Zoo is quite old...More

My husband and I visited the zoo, and I loved it. Not only were there animals I've never seen before (all kinds of monkeys, Kangaroos, and a giant ANTEATER,) but there were creative flower creations everywhere. For one that loves flowers, I was in heaven....More

I'm only rating 4 stars because when I went there was construction and alot of exhibits were closed. Also I wish the monkeys had a bigger enclosure.

Visited with our neighbors. This is a zoo with lots of animals, but average quality. You get to walk essentially mostly downhill and then take an elevator to the top when finished. It is great place for younger kids. There is also an indoor play...More

While this is not the most amazing zoo we have ever experienced, it is a cute little excursion, especially if you have kids. Some nice surrounding gardens and ponds as well as some light festivals and activities around the holidays.

A great place to visit with the kids. A nice walkable zoo, but with some hills. There are rides and fishing that you can do with the kids. There is also a fun interactive museum. A great whole day activity for the family!
